I have a mystery oil leak on my newly acquired $300 Honda Smelement. I've gone through all the spark plugs and oils/radiator. But now theres this leak right above the oil filter, dripping down on my new filter and the CV axle. Looks like some sort of plug there. Anyone know if this is a common failure and what part to replace?

Other than that, and the random codes it throws for emissions and airbags I think it will be a fine commuter!

Try the vtec oil pressure sensor that is on the vtec solenoid itself. My leak came down the oil filter as well and it looked like it was the oil pressure switch above it but it was vtec oil pressure switch above that one and fixed it with a new o ring. The old o ring was very stretched out.
